Captured live and in the studio over the course of 2003-2004, Artificially Retarded Soul Care Operators is the definitive pee-ess-eye blast of true and pure sacrificial brain-rot. A fifty-minute collection of densely cultivated mitherings from the unforeseen masters of complete silence.
Featuring beautiful full color gatefold cover art and poster by Fritz Welch and Stephen O'Malley.
"(psi) use any kind of noise to show their fangs to a common acceptance of the role of "musicians": one understands their capabilities from lots of elements, mastery of dynamics and sound placement on top of everything, but the whole package brims with repressed rage on the verge of explosion - the definitive farewell to that "beauty" that psi consider as enemy but is actually redefined, in raw clothing, by themselves." - Touching Extremes
